Tojiro are a Japanese manufacturer of traditional damask steel knives from the heart of Japanese knife production, Seki. These knives are from a series which are literally individually hand-made and finished according to old-fashioned ways. The handles are of Micarta material with brass piping through the handle in a traditional style. The blades are made from 63 layers of Damascus Steel, blackened and ground to a fine edge, with the central core of VG10 material. They are packed in a traditional Japanese wooden case.
